Other Information about the Home and Stove
Room Size (Sq ft): 250 | House Size (Sq feet): 3000
Bought in 2008 , Price Paid: 1800
Location : Gainesville, VA 20155, USA
Purchased from: Home Center/Hardware - ACE

Likes: Large Firebox, can really throw the heat, looks great - nice big glass doors - great views of fire, doors come right off - easy to clean, can get a good eight hours with with good wood fully stocked and damper mostly closed.

Dislikes: Can\'t close the damper all the way or doors will get dirty, have to remember to keep wood away from doors or creosote forms - doors stay pretty clean if you set the damper right and keep wood behind the rim

Comments: All around solid stove and looks great - burns clean without catalyst (low maintenance) - would be perfect if the firebox was a pinch larger and it had an ash pan (kind of hard to do with a flush insert of this size so it\'s a trade off). I did a TON of research and this unit really stood out.
